Before we left for vacation, I had the idea to bring my D40, thinking maybe I could teach Joshua some SLR basics.  I’m so glad I brought it!  He has been showing a growing interest in photography, and I want to nurture that interest as long as he wants me to.

With special guidelines on how to handle the camera and a few tips on getting the shot, we took a little time on morning one of camping to capture the nature right outside our tent door.  He also took a few photos when we went to Arches National Park.  He did such a great job!  These are a few of his shots straight from the camera.  (I resisted the temptation to edit them because I think it takes away from his artistic expression.)

we both followed this bug along for a while
i don’t have a whole lot of pics of myself and i love that he got me doing something that i love!
